Ron Munsey works the night shift as a janitor at the Peter Woodbury School in Bedford, New Hampshire. As such, he wouldn’t typically have much contact with the kids, who range from kindergarten age to fourth grade.
But Ron, in his first year at Woodbury, has found a way to connect with the students and indulge his artistic talent at the same – with a vacuum cleaner, no less.
As the photos show, Ron routinely leaves familiar designs in the carpet – logos for sports teams, the White House, even Charlie Brown.
The kids start the school day excited for what they might find, and the school administration appreciates his efforts as well.
“’Ron never worked as a custodian before, but you would think he’s been doing this forever,” Principal Cheryl Daley says.
Ron previously worked as a beverage distributor, putting in 60 to 70 hours a week and not feeling nearly the same satisfaction he’s getting at Woodbury. And he takes his creative outlets where he can get them – his wife won’t let him make designs on the living room carpet.

But no one at Woodbury minds; in fact, they wouldn’t have it any other way.
“He’s a ray of sunshine in our school,” Daley says. “And it’s awesome for every person in a school community to be recognized for their work and importance.”
